I see that the Pentax K-30 black body only is approaching US $700 at Amazon.com if anyone is interested.

Cheers.

Wow ,that's a great deal...I hope a friend of mine who bought a K-R about 6 months ago for 600 USD will not be happy when he finds this out....K-30 is about to be a true bargain...

at that price a great bargain. and last week i purchased a used k-5 in very good condition from amazon which i thought was a bargain at 721.00....it has gone up 100.00 since. in my eyes it makes the k30 even a more outstanding value

The price of the K-30 at Amazon has risen again. Yesterday I saw prices of $703 and $719. Today those prices are $748 and $769.

It's truly amazing how quickly, and sometimes how dramatically, prices can fluctuate on Amazon.

Cheers. Ernie

Amazon prices
In reply to ernieF, Aug 25, 2012

Not that surprising. The word in the trade is that Amazon offers different prices (at the same time) to different groups of prospects. It's a very fast way to find price sensitivity.
